Pastry Chef & Founder

Mandy Siu

Mandy built a solid culinary background working her way up in Michelin-starred establishments (L’Atelier de Robuchon) and five star hotels: The Ritz-Carlton and The Peninsula.

Her latest position was the Pastry Chef at the French fine-dining restaurant, L’Envol, at The St. Regis Hong Kong. In 2021, She was awarded 100 Top Tables’ Best Pastry Chef award.

The Beginning

In January 2022, Chef Mandy took a leap of faith by stepping out of her comfort zone to build her own pastry atelier to realize a goal she had since age 15.

Together with her team, we launched Finessence with the release of Galette des Rois, a classic French almond cream puff pastry cake made traditionally for the month of January. 

The Galette des Rois has now become an annual special event for our team each January.
